Pipe Stands

Pipe Stands

We provide an extensive range of robust pipe stands with either stationary or collapsible legs for diverse welding tasks. Pipe stands are essential tools for welders as they provide a stable and secure foundation for working on pipes. These stands are designed for welders to work on pipes at their desired height and angle, allowing them to weld with precision.

As part of our pipe stands range we also offer a variety of related spares and accessories, including pipe stand heads and wheel kits.

Benefits of Using Welding Pipe Stands

In the world of welding, one of the most critical aspects to ensuring a successful project is having a stable and secure platform to work on. When it comes to pipe welding, the need for reliable support becomes even more crucial. This is where welding pipe stands play a significant role.

Importance of Welding Pipe Stands

Welding pipe stands are purpose-built tools designed to hold and support pipes during welding operations. These stands provide a steady and level platform for welders to work on, allowing them to focus on achieving accurate welds without worrying about the stability of the pipe. By removing the risk of pipes rolling or shifting during welding, pipe stands enhance safety and productivity in welding operations.

Types of Welding Pipe Stands

Roller Stands

Designed with multiple rollers, these pipe stands provide rotational support to pipes during welding. They make it easier for welders to operate the pipe and rotate it as needed, minimising the chances of weld distortion. Roller stands are adjustable in height, allowing welders to align the pipes at the desired level.

Fixed Stands

Fixed stands are the simplest type of pipe stands. These stands are designed with a fixed support surface, providing a stable base for welding applications. Although they lack the rotational capabilities of roller stands, fixed stands are ideal for straight pipe welding where rotation is not necessary, such as for longer sections or during setup and tacking.

Why Use Welding Pipe Stands?

1. Enhanced Stability: Welding pipe stands provide a solid foundation for pipe welding, ensuring stability throughout the process. This stability allows welders to focus on achieving precise welds without worrying about holding or balancing the pipe, thereby improving the quality and consistency of the welds.

2. Freeing Up Welder's Hands: By holding the pipe securely in place, welding pipe stands free up the welder's hands to focus solely on operating the weld gun or torch. This increases welding accuracy and saves time by removing the need for additional personnel to assist in holding the pipe.

3. Improved Safety: Welding pipe stands significantly reduce the risk of accidents or injuries associated with pipes rolling or shifting during welding. By providing a safe and secure work environment, these stands minimise the chances of accidents, enhancing overall safety in the welding workplace.

4. Increased Productivity: With a stable platform and improved safety, welding pipe stands ensure smoother and more efficient welding operations. The welder can work at a comfortable pace, knowing that the pipe is securely held in position. This increased productivity leads to faster completion of welding projects, saving time and cost.

Welding pipe stands are crucial tools for pipe welding, offering stability, safety, and increased productivity. Whether it's the rotational support offered by roller stands or the fixed stability of fixed stands, these tools provide welders with the peace of mind required to focus on achieving impeccable welds. By investing in high-quality welding pipe stands, welders can significantly improve the accuracy and efficiency of their pipe joining operations.
